A Double-A team in Ottawa,
affiliated with the Jays
however, could probably print money... or at least whatever the equivalent of "printing money" is for AA ball, haha. I'm sure there's a profit ceiling for minor league baseball.
They'd be the only AA team to get even a trace amount of TSN air time (however brief, and tacked on at the end of the show it would be), I assure you of that. If the Jays were doing well in July and August, and in a chase for a playoff spot, I could absolutely see a "minor league update" if the farm team were Canadian, and not buried in some American town.
I think AA Baseball will succeed regardless. I think it's better suited for a place like Ottawa than AAA Baseball. I'd actually rather watch AA Baseball than AAA considering where most prospects are playing.
